I have been working on making a Marionette with a human like range of motion.
This leg shows me learning how to make the pins work, the nail emerging from the calf is drilled through from the bottom of the foot. I abandoned that idea for attaching feet.
The pins on my second leg are much cleaner, but I removed too much material in the joints and this allows the legs an unrealistic range of motion.
This is the third leg I’ve made, the joints are designed so that when the leg is out straight the front is flush. This restricts the range of motion so that the knee can only bend the correct way.
Im currently struggling with hips…
